Series and everything else after that

This isn't merely another series for Virat Kohi and team. It is all about gearing up for the next world cup which is just two years from now. Selectors have had a clear message to the likes of Dhoni that no one has a fixed place in the team. Virat has a similar stance for the team. Anyone and everyone has to prove the mettle and earn a berth in the team. With so much of young talent on bench, its a prosperous era of Indian cricket with no shortage of good cricketers ready to play for the nation.

Post this series, India plays the likes of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, etc. With a challenging schedule ahead, Indian team management is in no mood to take any series lightly. This team has a strong batting line up. Past few years, the team has struggled with the bowling but now this department too looks well settled. Fielding standards have gone way up for India in last decade.

Way the team has considered the inclusion of KL Rahul in the team or sending out a clear message to Dhoni to stay consistent; it seems the serious preparation for 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup begins from now!

Coming back to this series, Sri Lankan squad doesn't really post a threat to the Indian team. But who knows? Limited overs cricket can swing anyway. A brave innings from a young Sri Lankan or an inspirational bowling spell from a Lankan bowler can not only clinch a match but the series too! That's the beauty of cricket.

Let's how easy or hard it gets for such a strong Indian batting line up. Leaving everything aside, won't it be fun to watch the likes of Rohit Sharma, Kohli, Dhoni, Hardik Pandya or Kuldeep Yadav wearing blue and providing some great performances? It's all available in this India vs Srilanka cricket series. Enjoy!
